ENGLISH: Valdepeñas takes its name from the ancient city of the same name that lies in a sun-baked river valley dotted with small rocky formations – Val de peñas (Valley of Rocks). Located south of Castile-La Mancha in central Spain, it is almost completely encircled by the La Mancha Denominación de Origen (D.O.) and borders Andalusia to the south. The climate is extreme – temperatures reach 40 ºC in summer and up to -10 ºC in winter. The future of the D.O. lies with its red wines made from Tempranillo, which has the capacity to age well in crianzas, reserves and gran reserves.
TASTING NOTES : This wine is a brilliant cherry red in colour and exhibits a powerfully long and consistent aroma characterised by vanilla, chocolate, spices and jammy fruits. On the palate it is full-bodied, complex and elegant with well-structured tannins and a long smooth finish. Inspired by the clear, starry night sky, Félix Solís wanted to create a wine that would capture the pleasure-loving, life-affirming spirit of the Spanish people. He named it Albali after a star in the constellation of Aquarius. Viña Albali Reserva is made from a selection of only the best Tempranillo grapes chosen from old vineyards with small production. Having spent time ageing in oak barrels this variety produces wines with intense ruby red fruit aromas and hints of vanilla and spices.
